Restaurant in Mitchell International Airport unveils new menu showcasing iconic Wisconsin food
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A restaurant on Concourse D in Milwaukee's Mitchell International Airport unveiled a brand new menu Tuesday.
The Garden District Kitchen & Bar will now offer an expanded menu with an emphasis on Wisconsin products and iconic foods, including Usingers corned beef and brats, jalapeño cheese curds with sriracha ranch, and a Milwaukee fish fry featuring cod, seasoned fries, apple fennel slaw, house tartar sauce and marble rye.
"From appetizers, salad, burgers and entrees, the flavor of Wisconsin is conveyed in every dish," a press release from the airport says.
The Garden District Kitchen & Bar was opened by HMSHost and Perlick during the pandemic.
“HMSHost and Perlick provide family-sustaining jobs to hundreds of people in Milwaukee, and the investments they continue to make in our hometown Airport is great news for the traveling public,” Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley said. “Visitors fly to Milwaukee to see family or friends and attend conventions, sports events or festivals. The new menu at the Garden District Kitchen and Bar will give them a taste of what Milwaukee has to offer.”
The restaurant also features eight taps with six dedicated to pouring Wisconsin-brewed beers.
